NAKSHTRAS

There are 27 nakshatras (stars, constellations), which are:

01) Ashwini
02) Bharani
03) Kruthika
04) Rohini
05) Mrugashira
06) Arudra
07) Punarvasu
08) Pushyami
09) Aslesha
10) Makha
11) Pubba
12) Uthara
13) Hasta
14) Chitta
15) Swati
16) Visakha
17) Anuradha
18) Jyeshta
19) Moola
20) Purva Ashada
21) Uthara Ashada
22) Sharavana
23) Dhanishta
24) Satabisha
25) Purva Bhadra
26) Uthara Badra
27) Revathi

Longitude of one nakshatra is 13 deg. 20 minutes.


Hence 13 deg 20 minutes x 12 rashis = 360 degrees.

NB : 60 seconds = 1 minute.
60 minutes = 1 deg.
30 degrees = 1 rashi.
360 deg = 1 rashi chakra.

Hence 13 deg. 20 minutes = 800 minutes.

13 deg x 60 minutes = 780 minutes + 20 minutes = 800 minutes.

A person’s life is divided into different Vimshottari Dashas, totaling to 120 years.
Hence the total life is 120 years for a human being as per Hindu Predictive Astrology.

All persons borne under the Nakshatra Ashwini, Maka and Moola are borne in the
Vimashottari maha dasha of Ketu, since Ketu is the lord of these stars.

For other nakshatras in the Navakam Vimshottari dasha will be the same way as per
the respective lord of the Nakshatra.

Though there are other maha dashas such as Narayana dasha, Rashi dasha,
Ashttothari dasha, etc. the most commonly used and widely accepted mahadasha is
Vimshottari mahadasha.

CHANDRA (MOON) LAGNA (JANMA RASHI).

The placement of Moon is very important in a horoscope.

The Rashi in which Moon is placed is called Chandra Lagna or Janma Rashi or Moon
Rashi or Chandra lagnam.

Suppose in a horoscope if the Moon is placed at 10 deg. 50 minutes, we will say that
the Nakshatra of the person is Aswhini 4th padam. The lord of Ashwini is Ketu.

Since Moon is placed in Aries, the sign lord is Mars. Hence the sign lord is Mars and
Star lord is Ketu.

The Chandra rashi is more powerful than the Sun rashi.

The total longitude of a Nakshatra is 13 deg. 20 minutes, which is divided into 4 and shown
above as padams.

This particular division is called padam or charan. Longitude of each padam is


3 deg. 20 minutes. Hence 3-20 x 4 = 13-20.

MOTIONS OF PLANETS

Planets move forward and backward, which is called direct and retrogression.

Illuminaries such as Sun and Moon always move forward and it is called clock-wise
movement. This is also called direct movement.

Planets such as Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn move both forward and
backward (clock wise and anti clock wise), which is called direct and retrogression
respectively. (All movements backward or anti-clock wise are called retrogression).

Shadowy planets such as Rahu and Ketu always move backwards and hence they are
always in retrogression.

PLANETARY PECULIARITIES

Athichaara or Acceleration : Faster movement of planet is called acceleration

Stambhana or Stagnation : Placement in the same sign for more than usual
Period is called stagnation or stationery.

Astangata or combustion : Planets in intimate conjunction with Sun get


combustion.

Samagama : Planets placed along with Mon gets samagama

Arohana : Ascending direction from neecha to ucha.

Avarohana : Descending direction from uccha to neecha

CHAPTER 50

Athichaara or Acceleration : Faster movement of planet is called acceleration

There are planets who move faster in certain signs, especially Mercury, etc. Some
Astrologers while evaluating a horoscope and when a querist asked about the
fructification of an event, the speed of the planet is looked into and result told
thereon depending upon the fastness too.

Stambhana or Stagnation : Placement in the same sign for more than usual
Period is called stagnation or stationery.

This is called a planet getting stagnant in a house. Normally Mars takes around 45
days to cross over a sign. But if you remember during last year Mars stayed in Aries
for approx. 6 months. At that time mars and Saturn were in mutual aspect (viewing
each other). This has resulted in catastrophic effects all over the world. There were
ship sinking, mine collapsing, heavy rains, landslides, etc.

In the chart of President Kennedy, Mars and Saturn were in similar position (Mars in
Aries and Saturn in Cancer). In the chart of Attorney General Robert F Kennedy,
Mars and Saturn were in proximity to each other.

Hence it is concluded that malefic planet getting stagnant is dangerous. However,


planets like Sun and Moon or shadowy planets like Rahu or Ketu does not stagnant.

Astangata or combustion : Planets in intimate conjunction with Sun get


combustion.

There is normal belief that whoever planets get closer to Sun, gets their strength
reduced.

Samagama : Planets placed along with Mon gets samagama

Samagama is equality.

Arohana : Ascending direction from neecha to ucha.


50
HINDU PREDICTIVE ASTROLOGY

There are planets who goes from debilitation to exaltation or vice versa. For
example, Sun debilitates at 20 deg in Libra and movement therefrom is called
Arohana (ascending)

Avarohana : Descending direction from uccha to neecha

Avarohana (descending) is exactly opposite to Arohana

CHAPTER 52

ANTAR DASHA (BHUKTI)

Each Vimshottari Mahadasha is divided into Antar Dasha (Bhukti) as per the planets.

Some of the examples are given below:

Suppose Venus Mahadasha is of 20 years, which is divided into nine planetary antar
dasha as below:

Suppose VENUS MAHADASHA 20 years starts from 19.09.2005

Calculation is planetary dasha x planetary dasha


Take the last digit and multiply by 3.
Rest digits may be treated as months.

Hence Venus antar dasha will be: 20 x 20 = 40. Here last digit is 0. Hence 40
months, which is 3 years and 4 months.

Venus Antar Dasha 0 days, 4 months, 3 years,


19.09.2005
00.04.0003
-------------
19.01.2009

Sun Antar Dasha 20 x 6 = 120 means 12 months, which means 1 year


00.00.0001
-------------
19.01.2010

Moon Antar Dasha 20 x 10 = 210 = 0 days, 11 months, 1year

00.11.0001
-------------
19.12.2011
Mars Antar Dasha
Rahu Antar Dasha
Jupiter Antar Dasha
Saturn Antar Dasha
Mercury Antar Dasha
Ketu Antar Dasha

Another example: Rahu mahadasha, Rahu Antar dasha. 18 x 18 =324

Last digit 4 x 3 =12. hence 12 days and 32 months.


32 months is 2 years and 8 months

Hence Rahu MD, Rahu A.D. will be 12 d, 8 m, 2 years, and so on.

CHAPTER 55

LAGNAM CALCULATION.

Lagnam or Ascendant refers to the time of birth.

There are 12 rashis in the zodiac. There are 24 hours in a day. Hence each rashi
is having approximately 2 hours.

The earth on its axis rotates one time in 24 hours.

The calculation for lagna is as given below:--

There are two types of birth: before noon birth and after noon birth.

BEFORE NOON BIRTH.

All births before 12.00 noon are called before noon births.

Suppose, one person is borne at 9.30 a.m. on 02-Sept 1961 at Ernakulam.

The calculation for lagna is as follows (to be read with “Lahiri” Table of
Ascendants):--

Hr-min-sec
Indian standard time (time of birth) 09-30-00
Local mean time correction (for Ernakulam). minus 00-24-48
82-30 Central Longitude of India (GMT Minus 5.30 hrs)
76-18 Longitude of Ernakulam
06-12
x 4–4
24-48
Local mean time 09-05-12
Noon time (since morning birth) 12-00-00
OR 11-59-60
Local mean time minus 09-05-12
02-54-48
Table IV correction for 9 hours (LMT) Plus 00-00-20
-do- for 5 minutes (LMT) plus 00-00-09
Corrected time interval (CTI) 02-54-77
OR 02-55-17

Sidereal time (for Sept 2nd ) 10-43-48


Year correction (for 1961) Plus 00-00-54
Place Correction (for Ernakulam) Plus 00-00-04
Corrected Sidereal time (CST) 10-43-106
OR 10-44-46

Since morning birth, calculation is CST minus CTI:

Corrected Sidereal time (CST) 10-44-46


Corrected time interval minus 02-55-17
Sidereal time for Epoch (TFE) 07-49-29

56
HINDU PREDICTIVE ASTROLOGY

Contd..

Latitude for Ernakulam 09 deg. 59 min North

Please see page 17 of “Table of Ascendants” by NC Lahiri.

The time for Epoch is 7-49-29, which means 7 hours 49 minutes 29 seconds.

sign-deg-min
The table of ASC is (for 7-52) as per table 06-05-04
The table of ASC is (for 7-48) as per table Minus 06-04-05
Difference 00-00-59

Hence difference between 7-52 and 7-48 is 4 minutes.


Difference between signs is 59 minutes.

Hence 59 / 4 == 14.75 say 15minute arc for one minute of time.

For Time for Epoch 06-04-05


To arrive at TFE 7-49-29 plus 00-00-15
06-04-20
Ayanamsa correction for 1961 (year of birth) minus 00-00-19
The Ascendant 06-04-01

Hence the ascendant is 06 signs, 04 degrees and 01 minute.

i.e., Tula (Libra) Asc at 04 degree and 01 minutes, which is Chitta 4 padam.
or 184 deg. 01 minute.

SUB LORD CALCULATION.

The sub-lord is a calculation by Late Prof. K.S. Krishnamurty, who has brought about
his own way of prediction in which Sub lord is given more importance. The sub-lord
is nothing but all the nakshatras are divided into 9 as per the Vimshottari dasha
system as given below:

The longitude of a constellation is 13 deg. 20 minutes.

For Example, take the constellation Aswhini, longitude of which is 13 deg. 20 min.,
which is 800 minutes when converted into minutes. (13 x 60 = 780 + 20 min).

The calculation for sub lord of aswhini i.e., from 00 deg 00 min to 13 deg.20 min are
as follows:

Aswhini lord being Ketu, the sub-lord is started from Ketu.

Hence 800 x Ketu’s Vimshottari dasha divided by 120 years of total Vimshottari
dasha.

Similar way for other nakshatras. After Aswini, next Nakshatra is Bharani, whose
lord is Venus. Hence the sub-lord starts from Venus.

For example if a planet or asc. Falls within 00-00-00 to 00-46-40 degrees in Aries,
we can say the sub-lord of that planet is Ketu.

If Sun is placed in the above longitude, we can say the sign lord is Mars, Star Lord is
Ketu and Sub lord is also Ketu and so on.

CHAPTER – 58.

ABHIJIT NAKSHATRA.

Abijit (Abhijeet) Nakshatra is an existing constellation (Star - Nakshatra) in the


stellar system. But the same is said to have been de-activated by the Lord Sri Maha
Vishnu after the Mahabharatha War. However, persons born after four hours of
Uthrashada (Uthiradam) nakshatra are said to be part of this Abhijt (Abijeet)
nakshatram.

It is considered that Last part or end of 4th quarter in Uthirashada and two hours in
the first part of or 1st Charan or Quarter of Shravan are considered as Abhijeet
Nakshatram.

ABHIJIT LAGNA.

The 4th lagna from Sun’s position is called Abhijit lagna.

For example if the Sun is placed in Aries on a particular day, the fourth sign from
Aries is Cancer. Hence Cancer is the Abhiji lagna, and so on.

For all planets certain positions are considered good while certain position is
considered in-auspicious.

Saturn -- You are aware that Saturn takes 2 ½ years to cross over one sign and for
the entire rashi Chakra it takes 30 years.

When Saturn reaches 12th sign from your natal moon (the sign in which moon is
placed in your original birth chart) your Saade saath (or elartha shani) starts. This
will continue till Saturn leaves your 2nd sign from natal moon. So when Saturn
transits 12th, 1st and 2nd signs of your natal moon you will be experiencing Saade
Sath Shani.

CHAPTER 60

RASHI AND LAGNA DIRECTIONS.

The 4th house in an individual‘s chart signifies the living place of the native. And the
matters related to house are indicated by the planets in the 4th house and also the
position of the 4th lord in a chart. Planets play a crucial role in understanding the
nature of the directions.

Here are few notes on the individual lagna (ascendant) and the main directions
associated with that particular lagna.

*For Mesha (Aries) lagna moon is the 4th lord, and northwest is the main direction.
*For Rishabha (Taurus) lagna East is the main direction.
*For Mithuna (Gemini)North is the main direction.
*For Kataka (Cancer) lagna the southeast is main direction.
*For Simha (Leo) lagna the south is main direction.
*For Thula (Libra) and Vrichika (Scorpio) lagna the west is the main direction.
*For Dhanus (Sagittarius) lagna the northeast is the main direction.
*For Makara (Capricorn) lagna the south is the main direction.
*For Kumbha (Aquarius) southeast is the main direction.
*For Meena (Pisces) lagna north is the main direction.

CHAPTER 61 – ERECTING THE HOROSCOPE.

The books of ephemeries are giving planetary positions for every day or every alternative days
at 5.30 a.m. or 5.30 pm. The most read ephemery is the one made by N.C. Lahiri. In order to
erect the horoscope we need to find out the planetary position for any given time and date.

For example: Female born on 02.05.1979 at 12.05 hours (earning morning of 02.05.1979) at
Hyderabad, India.

The time lapsed from 5.30 am on 01.05.1979 to the time of birth i.e., 12.05 am (midnight of
01.05.1979) on 02.05.1979 is :

Time of birth: 24-05 pm


Ephemery pnt: 05-30 am
Difference : 18-35 hours

Hence the total time lapsed upto the time of birth is 18 hours 35 minutes, which when
converted into minutes is 1115 minutes (18x 60=1080 + 35). 24 hours when converted into
minutes, we get 1440 minutes.

The planetary position is taken from NC Lahiri ephemeries as below:

CHAPTER 62
LAGNAM CALCULATION (II)

Lagnam or Ascendant means the time of birth.

There are 12 rashis and 24 hours in a day. Hence each rashi is having
approximately 2 hours.

The earth on its axis rotates one time in 24 hours.

The calculation for lagna is as given below:--

There are two types of birth: before noon birth and after noon birth.

BEFORE NOON BIRTH.

All births before 12.00 noon are called before noon births.

Suppose, one person is borne at 00.05 a.m. on 02-May 1979 at Hyderabad.

The calculation for lagna is as follows as per book Table of Ascendants by NC


Lahiri:--

Hr-min-sec
Indian standard time (time of birth) 00-05-00
Local mean time correction (for Ernakulam). minus 00-24-48
Local mean time 09-05-12
Noon time (since morning birth) 12-00-00
OR 11-59-60
Local mean time minus 09-05-12
02-54-48
Table IV correction for 9 hours (LMT) Plus 00-00-20
-do- for 5 minutes (LMT) plus 00-00-09
Corrected time interval (CTI) 02-54-77
OR 02-55-17

Sidereal time (for May 2nd ) 10-43-48


Year correction (for 1979) Plus 00-00-54
Place Correction (for Hyderabad) Plus 00-00-04
Corrected Sidereal time (CST) 10-43-106
OR 10-44-46

Since afternoon birth, calculation is CST plus CTI:

Corrected Sidereal time (CST) 10-44-46


Corrected time interval minus 02-55-17
Sidereal time for Epoch (TFE) 07-49-29

Latitude for Ernakulam 09 deg. 59 min North

Please see page 17 of “Table of Ascendants” by NC Lahiri.

The time for Epoch is 7-49-29, which means 7 hours 49 minutes 29 seconds.
72
HINDU PREDICTIVE ASTROLOGY

sign-deg-min
The table of ASC is (for 7-52) as per table 06-05-04
The table of ASC is (for 7-48) as per table Minus 06-04-05
Difference 00-00-59

Hence difference between 7-52 and 7-48 is 4 minutes.


Difference between signs is 59 minutes.

Hence 59 / 4 == 14.75 say 15minute arc for one minute of time.

For Time for Epoch 06-04-05


To arrive at TFE 7-49-29 plus 00-00-15
06-04-20
Ayanamsa correction for 1961 minus 00-00-19
The Ascendant 06-04-01

Hence the ascendant is 06 signs, 04 degrees and 01 minute.

i.e., Tula lagnam at 04 degree and 01 minutes, which is Chitta 4 padam.

If any planet or Asc falls in Aswini 1st pada I.e., 00 deg to 3 deg 20 min in Aries, in the

Suppose one person born on 14 April to 17 april and that case the longitude of sun is 0 deg to 3-20
then in the navamsa chakra place sun in Aries only. Once the longidue of Sun is in between 3-20 to
6-40 then place Sun in Taurus. The same way for other planets. The same way for other planets
who are placed in other stars as per the table above.

TRANSIT

The transit of planets is very important in predictive part. Following are the planets’
transit time in a sign.

Sun 30 days
Moon 2 ¼ days
Mars 45 days
Mercury 30 to 40 days
Jupiter 1 year (including retrograde time)
Venus 30 to 40 days
Saturn 2 ½ years (including retrograde time)
Rahu 18 months
Ketu 18 months

Asc 2 hours (Asc is not a planet, but a mathematical point)

75
HINDU PREDICTIVE ASTROLOGY
CHAPTER 65

CLUE TO ASC CALCULATION.

There will be 12 Ascendants in a day, each having approx. 2 hours, thus totaling to
24 hours, which is one day again.

The ascendant is always counted from the position of Sun.

For example on April 14th every year Sun enters Aries as per Nirayana. From Sun
rise to approx for next hours Asc will be in Aries. Say 8 a.m. From 8 a.m. onwards
upto 10 a.m. (apprx.) Asc will be in Taurus and so on.

Similar way from May 15th every onwards the Asc starts at sun rise at Taurus, since
Sun will be in Taurus as per Nirayana.

The same way for other signs.

Jup® == R means retrograde. Other planets are in direct motion. Of course, Rahu
and Ketu are always in retrograde motion.

Today is 17th May 2007 and Sun is in Taurus at around 2 degrees.

At the time of Sun rise on 17th May 2007, the ascendant (lagna) shall be at Taurus.
At 11.04 a.m. Asc travelled upto Cancer at 16 deg 14 minutes.

ASTRONOMY – SUN

The Sun is the most prominent feature in our solar system. It is the largest object and
contains approximately 98% of the total solar system mass. One hundred and nine Earths
would be required to fit across the Sun's disk, and its interior could hold over 1.3 million
Earths. The Sun's outer visible layer is called the photosphere and has a temperature of
6,000°C (11,000°F). This layer has a mottled appearance due to the turbulent eruptions of
energy at the surface.

Solar energy is created deep within the core of the Sun. It is here that the temperature
(15,000,000° C; 27,000,000° F) and pressure (340 billion times Earth's air pressure at sea
level) is so intense that nuclear reactions take place. This reaction causes four protons or
hydrogen nuclei to fuse together to form one alpha particle or helium nucleus. The alpha
particle is about .7 percent less massive than the four protons. The difference in mass is
expelled as energy and is carried to the surface of the Sun, through a process known as
convection, where it is released as light and heat. Energy generated in the Sun's core takes a
million years to reach its surface. Every second 700 million tons of hydrogen are converted
into helium ashes. In the process 5 million tons of pure energy is released; therefore, as time
goes on the Sun is becoming lighter

The chromosphere is above the photosphere. Solar energy passes through this region on its
way out from the center of the Sun. Faculae and flares arise in the chromosphere. Faculae are
bright luminous hydrogen clouds which form above regions where sunspots are about to form.
Flares are bright filaments of hot gas emerging from sunspot regions. Sunspots are dark
depressions on the photosphere with a typical temperature of 4,000°C (7,000°F).

The corona is the outer part of the Sun's atmosphere. It is in this region that prominences
appears. Prominences are immense clouds of glowing gas that erupt from the upper
chromosphere. The outer region of the corona stretches far into space and consists of particles
traveling slowly away from the Sun. The corona can only be seen during total solar eclipses.
The Sun appears to have been active for 4.6 billion years and has enough fuel to go on for
another five billion years or so. At the end of its life, the Sun will start to fuse helium into
heavier elements and begin to swell up, ultimately growing so large that it will swallow the
Earth. After a billion years as a red giant, it will suddenly collapse into a white dwarf -- the
final end product of a star like ours. It may take a trillion years to cool off completely

ASTRONOMY – MERCURY

Mercury was named by the Romans after the fleet-footed messenger of the gods because it
seemed to move more quickly than any other planet. It is the closest planet to the Sun, and
second smallest planet in the solar system. Its diameter is 40% smaller than Earth and 40%
larger than the Moon. It is even smaller than Jupiter's moon Ganymede and Saturn's moon
Titan.

If an explorer were to step onto the surface of Mercury, he would discover a world resembling
lunar terrain. Mercury's rolling, dust-covered hills have been eroded from the constant
bombardment of meteorites. Fault-cliffs rise for several kilometers in height and extend for
hundreds of kilometers. Craters dot the surface. The explorer would notice that the Sun
appears two and a half times larger than on Earth; however, the sky is always black because
Mercury has virtually no atmosphere to cause scattering of light. As the explorer gazes out
into space, he might see two bright stars. One appearing as cream colored Venus and the
other as blue colored Earth.

Until Mariner 10, little was known about Mercury because of the difficulty in observing it from
Earth telescopes. At maximum elongation it is only 28 degrees from the Sun as seen from
Earth. Because of this, it can only be viewed during daylight hours or just prior to sunrise or
after sunset. When observed at dawn or dusk, Mercury is so low on the horizon that the light
must pass through 10 times the amount of Earth's atmosphere than it would if Mercury was
directly overhead.

During the 1880's, Giovanni Schiaparelli drew a sketch showing faint features on Mercury. He
determined that Mercury must be tidally locked to the Sun, just as the Moon is tidally locked
to Earth. In 1962, radio astronomers looked at radio emissions from Mercury and determined
that the dark side was too warm to be tidally locked. It was expected to be much colder if it
always faced away from the Sun. In 1965, Pettengill and Dyce determined Mercury's period of
rotation to be 59 +- 5 days based upon radar observations. Later in 1971, Goldstein refined
the rotation period to be 58.65 +- 0.25 days using radar observations. After close observation
by the Mariner 10 spacecraft, the period was determined to be 58.646 +- 0.005 days.

Although Mercury is not tidally locked to the Sun, its rotational period is tidally coupled to its
orbital period. Mercury rotates one and a half times during each orbit. Because of this 3:2
resonance, a day on Mercury (sun rise to sun rise) is 176 Earth days long as shown by the
following diagram

HINDU PREDICTIVE ASTROLOGY
ASTRONOMY -- VENUS

Venus, the jewel of the sky, was once know by ancient astronomers as the morning star
and evening star. Early astronomers once thought Venus to be two separate bodies. Venus,
which is named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty, is veiled by thick swirling cloud
cover.

Astronomers refer to Venus as Earth's sister planet. Both are similar in size, mass, density and
volume. Both formed about the same time and condensed out of the same nebula. However,
during the last few years scientists have found that the kinship ends here. Venus is very
different from the Earth. It has no oceans and is surrounded by a heavy atmosphere
composed mainly of carbon dioxide with virtually no water vapor. Its clouds are composed of
sulfuric acid droplets. At the surface, the atmospheric pressure is 92 times that of the Earth's
at sea-level.

Venus is scorched with a surface temperature of about 482° C (900° F). This high temperature
is primarily due to a runaway greenhouse effect caused by the heavy atmosphere of carbon
dioxide. Sunlight passes through the atmosphere to heat the surface of the planet. Heat is
radiated out, but is trapped by the dense atmosphere and not allowed to escape into space.
This makes Venus hotter than Mercury.

A Venusian day is 243 Earth days and is longer than its year of 225 days. Oddly, Venus
rotates from east to west. To an observer on Venus, the Sun would rise in the west and set in
the east.

Until just recently, Venus' dense cloud cover has prevented scientists from uncovering the
geological nature of the surface. Developments in radar telescopes and radar imaging systems
orbiting the planet have made it possible to see through the cloud deck to the surface below.
Four of the most successful missions in revealing the Venusian surface are NASA's Pioneer
Venus mission (1978), the Soviet Union's Venera 15 and 16 missions (1983-1984), and
NASA's Magellan radar mapping mission (1990-1994). As these spacecraft began mapping the
planet a new picture of Venus emerged.

Venus' surface is relatively young geologically speaking. It appears to have been completely
resurfaced 300 to 500 million years ago. Scientists debate how and why this occurred. The
Venusian topography consists of vast plains covered by lava flows and mountain or highland
regions deformed by geological activity. Maxwell Montes in Ishtar Terra is the highest peak on
Venus. The Aphrodite Terra highlands extend almost half way around the equator. Magellan
images of highland regions above 2.5 kilometers (1.5 miles) are unusually bright,
characteristic of moist soil. However, liquid water does not exist on the surface and cannot
account for the bright highlands. One theory suggests that the bright material might be
composed of metallic compounds. Studies have shown the material might be iron pyrite (also
know as "fools gold"). It is unstable on the plains but would be stable in the highlands. The
material could also be some type of exotic material which would give the same results but at
lower concentrations.

Venus is scarred by numerous impact craters distrubuted randomly over its surface. Small
craters less that 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) are almost non-existent due to the heavy Venusian
atmosphere. The exception occurs when large meteorites shatter just before impact, creating
crater clusters. Volcanoes and volcanic features are even more numerous. At least 85% of the
Venusian surface is covered with volcanic rock. Hugh lava flows, extending for hundreds of
kilometers, have flooded the lowlands creating vast plains. More than 100,000 small shield
volcanoes dot the surface along with hundreds of large volcanos. Flows from volcanos have
produced long sinuous channels extending for hundreds of kilometers, with one extending
nearly 7,000 kilometers (4,300 miles).

84
HINDU PREDICTIVE ASTROLOGY
Giant calderas more than 100 kilometers (62 miles) in diameter are found on Venus.
Terrestrial calderas are usually only several kilometers in diameter. Several features unique to
Venus include coronae and arachnoids. Coronae are large circular to oval features, encircled
with cliffs and are hundreds of kilometers across. They are thought to be the surface
expression of mantle upwelling. Archnoids are circular to elongated features similar to
coronae. They may have been caused by molten rock seeping into surface fractures and
producing systems of radiating dikes and fractures

ASTRONOMY -- SATURN

Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and is the second largest in the solar system with an
equatorial diameter of 119,300 kilometers (74,130 miles). Much of what is known about the
planet is due to the Voyager explorations in 1980-81. Saturn is visibly flattened at the poles, a
result of the very fast rotation of the planet on its axis. Its day is 10 hours, 39 minutes long,
and it takes 29.5 Earth years to revolve about the Sun. The atmosphere is primarily composed
of hydrogen with small amounts of helium and methane. Saturn is the only planet less dense
than water (about 30 percent less). In the unlikely event that a large enough ocean could be
found, Saturn would float in it. Saturn's hazy yellow hue is marked by broad atmospheric
banding similar to, but fainter than, that found on Jupiter.

The wind blows at high speeds on Saturn. Near the equator, it reaches velocities of 500
meters a second (1,100 miles an hour). The wind blows mostly in an easterly direction. The
strongest winds are found near the equator and velocity falls off uniformly at higher latitudes.
At latitudes greater than 35 degrees, winds alternate east and west as latitude increases.
Saturn's ring system makes the planet one of the most beautiful objects in the solar system.
The rings are split into a number of different parts, which include the bright A and B rings and
a fainter C ring. The ring system has various gaps. The most notable gap is the Cassini [kah-
SEE-nee] Division, which separates the A and B rings.

Giovanni Cassini discovered this division in 1675. The Encke [EN-kee] Division, which splits
the A Ring, is named after Johann Encke, who discovered it in 1837. Space probes have shown
that the main rings are really made up of a large number of narrow ringlets. The origin of the
rings is obscure. It is thought that the rings may have been formed from larger moons that
were shattered by impacts of comets and meteoroids. The ring composition is not known for
certain, but the rings do show a significant amount of water. They may be composed of
icebergs and/or snowballs from a few centimeters to a few meters in size. Much of the
elaborate structure of some of the rings is due to the gravitational effects of nearby satellites.
This phenomenon is demonstrated by the relationship between the F-ring and two small
moons that shepherd the ring material.

Radial, spoke-like features in the broad B-ring were also found by the Voyagers. The features
are believed to be composed of fine, dust-size particles. The spokes were observed to form
and dissipate in the time-lapse images taken by the Voyagers. While electrostatic charging
may create spokes by levitating dust particles above the ring, the exact cause of the formation
of the spokes is not well understood.

Besides Badhaka lord, if any planet posited in Badhaka house will become a
badhaka. A planet posited in the star of either lord of Badhaka or occupant of
badhaka also become badhaka.

Yoagaraka

Yogakaraka is a planet become lord of Quadrant (1,4,7,10) and Trine (1,5,9) for a
particular sign. The meaning of yogakaraka is “most beneficial”

For example, if person is born in Libra or Taurus born Saturn shall be the yogakaraka
planet. Saturn becomes lord of quadrant house as well as a trine house. For Taurus
born (including Moon sign), Saturn becomes lord of 9 and 10. For Libra born
(including Moon sign) Saturn becomes lord of 4 and 5.

Similarly, for Cancer or Leo born, Mars shall be the lord of Quadrant and Trine and as
such Mars is the yogakaraka for these two signs (both for Ascendant as well as for
Moon.)
